Odd Problems:Install PCI modem on Win MELocked
i?ve replaced the 56K pci modem with a new one of Agere & got some odd problems on Win ME.
-checked physical installation
-tried it on a another pci slot
-repeatedly remove & reinstall the modem driver
-refer to Win ME help file & it?s troubleshooting steps
-WinME cannot detect the pci modem when system start up
-The 1st time i tried to install the new modem from CD, after select e:\WinME & hit OK button, the Windows blue scr turned up:
An error has occurred.
Error in address 0D: 0028: 00000003
-when hit any key to continue, WinME seems to have problem in the pixel display for the desktop. The img around the window on the desktop could come out as normal, but img at other area just could not appear instantly. Need to move the window across the Desktop area for the stuff on Desktop to come out properly.
-each time reinstall modem, still get the same blue scr with err occurred at the same
-in Devise Manager after reinstallation, seems no conflict. But in Diagnostic, ?No response? from the modem & the err ?Port Already Open?.
-by default, under the Port section in Device Manager, only LPT port for printer, and COM 1 for serial mouse were shown. However, the mouse actually doesn’t use the Serial COM 1
-In the modem installation wizard, the only port that I could select for the modem is COM 1. After a few times of remove-reinstall sessions, i add 2 more ports. Then at another modem reinstall session, tried select COM 3 for the pci modem, but didn?t work.
I don?t have the WinME cd to get Wmremove.inf. Are there any other way to remove the old modem?s entries in registry ?
-Had uninstall the previous modem driver(driver of SmartLink) from Device Manager, but can’t remove it from the Add/Remove Program ?
-Have updated driver from Aztech?s website, but still not work.
Appreciate if anyone could help. Thx.
